USA Today ran an item on April 12, 1999, which reported that "Lower Birthrate Drains Labor
Pool." This article states that "from 1996 to 2006, the percentage of workers 25-34 will shrink
nine percent, and those 35-44 will slip three percent." This is not the first time this paper has
noted the problems caused by a lack of people in the workforce; it is just the most recent.
"The most important single new certainty-if only because there is no precedent for it in
all of history-is the collapsing birthrate in the developed world."
Drucker identifies as the single most important business factor of the next century exactly
what Bob Sassone, Steve Mosher, Judie Brown, Jim Sedlak and others have been warning
about for the last 20 years. We've always asked the question "If we kill all our children, where
will the consumers of the future come from?" Now the corporate world is beginning to wake
up, and they do not like the answer.
Can you imagine the collapse of all the social systems as we know them today as our young
people are steadily killed and our elderly find that, in order to solve the problems caused by
the aging population, they are more and more pressured to end their lives?
THE ABORTION CONNECTION
It may seem obvious that the declining birthrate and all the subsequent economic problems
are directly attributable to abortion. But none of the articles cited herein even mentioned
It seems that the same people who refused to listen to us for 20 years and are now surprised
by the results, still do not understand.
How can you kill 1.5 million babies through surgical abortion in the United States every year
and believe that you will not eventually have the problem of too few young people?
When you add to that the fact that approximately 50 million babies are killed in the world every
year by surgical abortion, it becomes clear that the problems discussed by Drucker and others
Then you multiply these numbers by 26 years of legalized murder through abortion, you realize
that we have lost 1.3 billion young people from our world. If these babies had been born, we
would have a large number of young people driving the consumer market. We could plan on an
expanding number of young people entering our workforce, buying houses and cars and
contributing to a growing world economy.
1998 Revision of World Population Estimates and Projections
Department of Economic and Social Affairs
This October 1998 document contained information on the world
population shortage. It stated that
61 countries now have a below-replacement birth rate. This is an
increase of 20 percent in just two years.
The median age of the world population (i.e. half the people are above
the median age and half the people are below it) in 1950 was 23.5 years.
The median age has increased modestly to 26.1 years in 1998. However,
the UN currently predicts that, by the year 2050, the median age will be
37.8 years worldwide, and 47.4 years in Europe!
